Lionel Messi who is recently in lockdown because of the Coronavirus outbreak is motivating his fans to stay indoors and follow all the protocols that are crucial for their health safety. And now with his donation of 1 Million Euros to the medical centers is definitely something worth applauding for.
Posting on Instagram last week, Messi wrote: ‘These are complicated days for the whole world. ‘We are living worried about what is happening and we want to help by putting ourselves in the place of those who are suffering the worst, or because they have been directly affected, or their family and friends, or because they’re working in the front line to fight it in hospitals and health centers.
‘I want to send a lot of strength to all of them. Health should always be an important thing. It’s an extraordinary moment and you have to follow the indications from health organizations like the public authority. Only like this can we fight it in an effective way. Health should always be an important thing. It’s the moment to be responsible and stay at home, we can also enjoy this time with our family that we don’t always have. A hug and I hope we can turn the situation around as soon as possible. #StayAtHome’
